HOW TO PLAN THE BEST PARTY EVER IN NYC AND NJ



Whether you’re looking to plan a bachelor party, bachelorette party, or even a birthday party, your top priority is to make sure the day goes on without any hitches. 

A successful party does not only create a good impression on your guests but also presents you as an organized person. 


If you have planned any party before, you know how hard and embarrassing it can be especially if you contract unreliable people.


So in this guide, I’ll walk you through all the steps to make sure you stop being overwhelmed with what to focus on first to having a well-planned, fun-filled day.

Let’s jump right in.

1.   DECIDE ON THE SIZE OF YOUR GUEST LIST.

2.   CHOOSE THE VENUE.

3.   CHOOSE THE MODE OF TRANSPORTATION.

4.   IDENTIFY THE ACTIVITIES TO TAKE PLACE AT YOUR PARTY.

5.   PICK A THEME.

6.   PICK A MENU.

7.   HOW TO BEST CONTRACT EFFICIENT PEOPLE FOR YOUR PARTY.

8.   SET A BUDGET.

9.   SEND OUT INVITATIONS.

10.  THANK YOUR GUESTS.


 1.   DECIDE ON THE SIZE OF THE GUEST LIST.

This is the most important aspect of any party. The number of guests in your party definitely determines your budget so keep that in mind.

The second tip is that you should invite more people than you expect. Here’s why? Most of the time, 70% of the total people invited show up for any kind of party so put that into consideration when inviting people.

Another really simple trick is to ask people to confirm attendance a week prior to the party just to ensure the food you budgeted for can fit the number of people invited.

Create a list of people you would like to attend your party. Keep this list as you will need it when sending out personalized invitations. 

This should be done at least two months prior to the actual party.


2. CHOOSE THE VENUE.


With New York party planning, this aspect is very important. As we all know New York City is a very expensive city so scouting out the best venue is the best thing you can do for yourself.

When choosing venues ensure you pick a reliable event venue dealer. If you’re in New York, you can check out space online from peerspace.com and book a site visit. 

This eliminates any hike in prices if you’re planning a wedding. Ensure you have allocated a good chunk of your money to book a venue for your party.

 3. CHOOSE THE MODE OF TRANSPORTATION.


On this special occasion, you need to feel special, be treated like a king or a queen, and ensure your friends enjoy every bit of it. 

Obviously, in the case of planning a bachelorette or bachelor party, you will want to surprise the groom or bride to be.

Think about this, what fun is there when you’re traveling in different vehicles for a bachelorette or bachelor party? NONE AT ALL.

You want to create fun, memorable memories together and that’s the reason why you should consider hiring a large bus for such an event.



WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS.

1. You can pop your champagne in there before you hit the club or casino.

    2. You don’t need a designated driver for the night. You can all have a good time without worrying about unnecessary encounters with the cops if you know what I mean.

    3. You don’t have to worry about gas neither do you need to worry about taking a leak outside if the venue is far away. It’s all about being stress-free on that big day.


In fact, this casino bus charter will offer all these services. They have a large fleet of cars that can fit your guests from 39 people to 56 people.


They have power outlets to charge your phone, bathrooms, and TVs for your comfort at really affordable prices. 

You don’t have to dig deep into your pocket when party planning to have a really good time with this company, really.



  4. IDENTIFY THE ACTIVITIES TO TAKE PLACE AT YOUR           PARTY.


With any party planning, you need to make sure that the party owner is comfortable with all the activities you have set out on that day. 

Be it hitting up a casino, a spa day, clubbing, karaoke, or an out-of-town, relaxing getaway weekend, remember to solely focus on the party owner.

  5.    PICK A THEME.


Remember, a good party needs a theme to go with it, be it the dress code or venue set up. 

Choose a theme that represents your style. At the end of the day, the goal is to have a good time with your friends. 

And in order to do that, you need to feel comfortable with the venue. At the same time, keep in mind the budget you’re working with. 

  6.    PICK A MENU.


Obviously, there needs to be some food for your guests. If you need to hire a caterer to sort this area for you, please do so. 

Pick out the types of dishes you want to be served. 

Make sure you taste the food to be presented prior to the party. This way you ensure that the food is up to the standard you want. 

After all, it’s your party and you need the best of everything on that day.

PS: Be wary of dishes that have products that most people are allergic to like peanut butter and eggs.

  7. HOW TO BEST CONTRACT EFFICIENT PEOPLE TO SERVICE  YOUR PARTY.

There are a few things you should check before settling on a specific person to contract at any party.

  a. Reviews. You need to know who they have worked with before and what they had to say about their services. Good reviews always mean that they offer quality services.

  b. Time consciousness. Time is money. And you know everyone planning your party is charging you by the hour so you need service-based providers who are able to keep time to save you the stress and money.

  c. Quality of the products provided. You need to double check the quality of the food, cake, seats. 
  
    Everything that will be in your party needs to be double checked. You can do this by requesting to see the product, if not edible or taste it, if edible.

  8.    SET A BUDGET.


When setting your budget, you need to have looked at all the things mentioned above. 

Prior window shopping to get a feel of the cost of different items will give you an insight into what your budget will look like. 

This avoids overspending or purchasing unnecessary items.

  9.   SEND OUT INVITATIONS.


It’s time to reach out to your guests. Now, this entirely depends on the type of party that you’re hosting.

For bachelor and bachelorette parties, the main guests are your bridesmaids and groomsmen. 

In this case, the invitations should not be that much of a big deal. Instead, you should focus on setting the date of the party when all the bridesmaids and groomsmen are available.

When it comes to any other party, be it a wedding, a birthday party, or a graduation party, you need to send out invitations.

Do you remember how you created a list of your guests earlier in this article? 

Well, it’s time to use that list.

  a. Figure out if it will be an actual invitation card or an e-invitation card.

  b. Figure out if you want it to be as informal as a simple text message or very formalized as a personalized actual invitation card.

  c. Make sure all your invites are personalized meaning you have to mention your guests’ names.

 d. Figure out if your party will be an invite-only party so that you’re able to scale your expenses or not.

   10. THANK YOUR GUESTS.


I see most people skipping this step. You need to thank your guests for showing up and supporting you on your big day. You can send a simple message like the one below:

Hey {guest name},
Thank you so much for attending my party. Your presence was highly appreciated. Have a lovely {day. Afternoon, evening.}

It’s that simple. This only ensures that the next time you have any kind of party that these people will support you once more because of you appreciating the time they took off their busy schedules to attend your party.

Now, it’s time to go and plan your party. Don’t forget to have a blast while doing it and leave a comment if you’re currently planning your party. 

PS: Don’t forget to mention the most difficult part about planning your party.

Thank you for reading this post.
